The fine bast and the woody hurds of the inner stem are the two types of fiber that hemp generates. The tough wooden hurds, also known as shives, are used as construction materials because they are sturdy, similar to how the fine bast is used to make paper and fabric.
Hemp has been used for construction for a very long time, and it is well known for its strength and superiority to other materials. A hemp-filled mortar was recently found in a French bridge connection from the sixth century. Following that discovery, modern French restorationists developed a hemp-lime mixture that has been suggested for use in restoration efforts of medieval timber-framed buildings in place of daub and wattle.
The newly developed building materials have demonstrated excellent potential as a great replacement for Portland cement, It has shortcomings like poor breathability and a high propensity for moisture collection. Hempcrete and hemp wood have become the most well-known hemp-based building products in recent years.
There are several residential and commercial structures made of hemp throughout Canada and Europe, including one Prince Charles erected. The bio-composite material known as hempcrete, commonly referred to as hemp-lime, is made of lime and hemp hurds. Due to their high silica concentration, hemp shives constitute a great binding agent.
The Global hemp construction materials market accounted for $XX Billion in 2022 and is anticipated to reach $XX Billion by 2030, registering a CAGR of XX% from 2023 to 2030.
The launch of hemp Construction Bales, another premium fiber product made from structural bast fiber produced by a HempTrain Advanced Processing Plant, is being proudly announced by Greenfield Technologies Corp. NForce Construction Bales are high load-bearing, construction-grade bales for green construction.
Bast fiber, which is manufactured by HempTrain and firmly compacted into construction bales by specialized machinery created and manufactured by CGT, has exceptional structural qualities that contribute to its high load-bearing capacity.
NForce Construction Bales are designed to dramatically increase the use of renewable materials in energy-efficient buildings by allowing for the construction of load-bearing and insulating walls. Other applications, such as those in water and erosion control projects and transportation, are also possible.
